Posted on

Read the full article here: https://www.heritagefund.org.uk/funding/national-lottery-grants-heritage-2021-22

Applications are now open for National Lottery Grants for Heritage from £3,000 to £5million. This marks a return to our core business, but it is not a return to ‘business as usual’.

 

We will prioritise heritage projects that will:

  • boost the local economy
  • encourage skills development and job creation
  • support wellbeing
  • create better places to live, work and visit
  • improve the resilience of organisations working in heritage

Every project will need to achieve our inclusion outcome, ‘a wider range of people will be involved in heritage’.

We will also expect all projects to demonstrate that they are building long-term environmental sustainability into their plans, as appropriate.
